Produced in Bend, OR, C.W. Irwin is named for the brother of Oregon Spirt Distillers' owner Brad Irwin. The grains used in the mash bill - a blend of corn, wheat, rye and malted barley - are locally grown. The barrels in which it's aged for 3 years are produced at the Barrel Mill, which uses sustainable practices to harvest the trees used, planting 3 for every one cut down.

Tasting Notes

"This bourbon tastes very much of the lush, piney and clean land whence it comes. Imagine sipping this from a flask on a hike by the coast, the dense mist settling over the ocean and the fresh smell of grass and trees surrounding you. All this greenery is well balanced by classic bourbon flavors - the leather, oak, tobacco and sweet spice, though in a much drier, saltier style than is typically presented."
